Let’s make ourselves a cup of the famous Burger King BK Iced Coffee. The burger chain has some serious competition, but their iced coffee is unmatched in the fast-food category.
Rich, creamy, addictively sweet and somewhat chocolatey, this is one good iced coffee. And you know what? You can make an easy version at home with just four ingredients plus the ice.
The secret behind the beautiful iced coffee at Burger King is the quality of the beans. They use 100% Arabica roasted in Seattle, and they surely know how to make good coffee in Emerald City.
To make this iced coffee, you need fine-quality coffee, and I mean the nicest you can find. You also need half & half, which is much creamier than whole milk and granulated sugar or your favorite sweetener.
I’ve noticed the staff at Burger King sneak a few dashes of chocolate syrup into their iced coffee — I guess that’s their secret. We’re using chocolate syrup as well, just to keep our’s legit.
To make this specialty, I like to blend all the ingredients to guarantee everything is nicely dissolved and even. Then I pour the iced coffee over ice. This gives you another alternative, though, you can also blend the ingredients with the ice for a more refreshing blended coffee.
Why blend the ingredients instead of just stirring them together? Incorporating chocolate syrup and sugar into such a thick and creamy coffee is not easy. Besides, you want to add some air to the mix as well.
Here’s how you want to serve your Burger King Iced coffee. Blend the ingredients and refrigerate the coffee for at least half an hour, then pour it over ice. For this one, the colder, the better.
And for a nice pairing, serve this tasty coffee with another Burger King specialty, like their cream pies and Oreo fudge cakes. You can also make your own. If you’re already a home barista, you’ll love baking a few treats as well. Bakes and coffee are two sides of the same coin!
Add the coffee, half & half, sugar and chocolate syrup into a blender and blitz until fully incorporated.
Refrigerate the iced coffee for at least half an hour before serving over fresh ice.
Optionally, garnish with whipped cream.
